Itemization Strategy

Impact and Sustainability! Loved by several magic type cores this spell is their walking fountain companion, tho it doesn't really walk but the benifits are pretty much the same. A post laning to mid game item timing that could be deadly the earlier you can build it. Heroes that benefit more on it are Leshrac and Bristleback.

Heroes with Bloodstone as Core Item

A core item that gives you massive spell lifesteal to survive in teamfights with Quill Spray stacks. Works incredibly well with the Aghanims Scepter.

Trivia

When Bloodstone was initially introduced in Dota 2, it had a different set of mechanics compared to its current iteration. Initially, it required a Soul Booster, Perseverance, and a Recipe to be crafted. The item's primary function revolved around granting increased health, mana regeneration, and a charge-based system that reduced respawn time upon death.
